I assumed that the "bus butt" maneuver was due to not having enough room to pull in to the bus stop and have the long back end of the bus "catch up" with the front.
But yes, always yield to transit. The needs of the many, etc.

White Americans naming their band "Dead Kennedys" is one thing.
White Americans naming their band after the army that kicked our asses a few decades ago, and then established the legitimate government in a country with which we now have diplomatic relations, is another. Maybe like a German band calling themselves "G.I. Joe" or "Allied Liberators of Europe".

commented on Greatest Friday News Dump Ever: WSDOT Is Suing Seattle Tunnel Partners
@11: Currently the viaduct is alleviating traffic on I-5.
Seattle traffic is, on the whole, a mess.
The tunnel has *less* capacity than the current viaduct. And it'll cost at least $5 per use.
The only "alleviation" of traffic on I-5 that the tunnel will do is relative to the traffic that's forced off the viaduct once the project reaches the point where we have to tear it down, and the months (probably years) until the tunnel actually opens.
